It didn’t work out, and Akhmat scored. Matvey’s place at the start of the Cup Superfinal is now in doubt.
“Krasnodar” in the match with “Akhmat” opened the scoring in the 66th minute: John Cordoba, after a pass from Ilzat Akhmetov, rolled the ball into the goal with the goalkeeper playing behind. But already four minutes later, the guests conceded, and this goal was the result of a ridiculous “bring” by Matvey Safonov.
Akhmat striker Islam Alsultanov went to put pressure on the Krasnodar goalkeeper when he received a pass from a defender. But for some reason Safonov began to feint, instead of giving the transfer to a partner. As a result, Matvey let the ball go far, Alsultanov took it, then Safonov fell, and then Ivan Oleinikov grooved to Vladislav Kamilov. He completed the job by shooting the ball into the goal.

This season, Safonov is not making a mistake for the first time (there were more mistakes in the match with Zenit and Ural, Rostov and Fakel). At the same time, a series of penalties in the Safonov Cup was also withdrawn. So, the main intrigue of the Krasnodar starting lineup for the Russian Cup Superfinal match is whether Matvey will start from the very beginning.
